    Hi!

    I recently needed to change my internal private IP address of my SBS 2003
    Server, running Exchange services. To the best of my knowledge, I had found
    all I needed to do was change the IP address, then go in and edit any DNS
    records that pointed to the server IP and update them with the new
    information.

    For the most part, everything is fine. I can login to the doman, I can
    share files and things seem to be ok. However, when I use Exchange, I CAN
    access mailboxes the content within although I now cannot seem to be able to
    send messages/appointments/etc internally between the Exchange users. This
    machine does not utilize Internet email of any kind, it is strictly an
    internal machine.

    Could anyone offer me some pointers as to where I can look for where the
    problem may lie?

    So far I have searched the Application/System/etc logs and no errors are
    occuring. I turned the SMTP loggin up from Minimum to Medium to see if
    anything new was reported, but still no errors appear. What else is there to
    check?

    Thanks for any information!

  2. There's actually a bit more to it than that on SBS.. For example, we
    actually have a wizard to be able to change the server's internal IP
    address.. Why? Because, not only do you need to do things like you
    mentioned as far as change the IP address of the server, change who it's
    pointing to for DNS, but also for WINS, possible create a new reverse
    lookup zone in DNS, create a new DHCP scope with the updated information,
    change IP restrictions within IIS (if using Std. Edition to not allow
    access to sites from the Internet), changes settings within Exchange, ISA
    changes (if using Premium Edition with ISA) just to name a few..

    So, if you didn't use the ChangeIP wizard from the Start/Server
    Management/Internet and Email/Change Server IP then first I'd suggest
    running the wizard.. then after it completes you will want to be sure and
    go into the DNS server mmc and right click on the reverse lookup zone for
    your private IP address and select Properties to change it to Secure
    Dynamic Updates.

    Thanks for the reply, and for the information about changing IPs in SBS! I
    was not aware of that.

    Upon attempting to run the wizard to change my IP address, I receive an
    error this information in the logfile:

    5/2/2005 4:53 PM
    Current User: *****
    Old IP Address: 192.168.1.134
    Old Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
    New IP Address: 192.168.1.2
    New Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
    ModifyPrivateNicProperties returned OK
    ConfigureDns returned OK
    ConfigureDHCP returned OK
    *** ConfigureIIS returned ERROR 8007054b

    I am trying to find information about this error, but not having a lot of
    luck at the moment. It seems to have something to do with either DNS or
    SMTP. If you can offer any pointers, I'd greatly appreciate it!

    Thanks again!

  4. Using a tool called err.exe it looks like

    err 8007054b
    # as an HRESULT: Severity: FAILURE (1), Facility: 0x7, Code 0x54b
    # for hex 0x54b / decimal 1355 :
    ERROR_NO_SUCH_DOMAIN winerror.h
    # The specified domain either does not exist or could not be
    # contacted.


    So, make sure that the server is only pointing to itself for DNS.. and we
    make also need to verify that DNS has the records that it should for the
    domain itself.. SRV records etc.

    Err.exe (Error code lookup) has the header files for the OS and others..
    There may be other places where this util is included, but I know its in

  5. Another place you might check, is in Start/Administrative Tools/DNS and
    right click on the server's name and select Properties. Check the IP
    address that it is configured to listen on to ensure that it's the server's
    current IP address.
